WestCoast Racing has concluded its first test day for the year as the team started preparations for the season at Ring Knutstorp in Skåne. Richard Göransson and Martin Öhlin both tested their cars and reigning champion Richard Göransson had a fun first day as the team intiated a new development program together with suspension manufacturer Öhlins.
– It was real good fun to drive again and be back on slicks with plenty of grip, Richard says. We developed some new things together with Öhlins and got a lot done on our first test day for the year. I’ve almost forgotten how good it is to have a team mate again, I could share a lot of data with Martin and we worked well together. It’s great to be back on track again and we have a new busy day planned for tomorrow.

This was the first real STCC-test for Martin Öhlin and came to grips with the new driving style required for the touring car. Martin was happy with his first test day with the team and looks forward to the next test tomorrow.
– This was fun, extremly good fun, Martin says. It was my first proper STCC-test and it took me a while to get to grip with the new driving style. I developed during the day and it’s going in the right direction. I have a lot of impressions to think about. I went through a lot of data with Richard and now I look forward to test some new ideas for tomorrow. Our preperations have started!

WestCoast will continue the tests at Ring Knutstorp tomorrow Tuesday.
